Exclamation Poll: Arkym LCI E90 Trunk vs. OEM

I'm half and half on the Arkym LCI Trunk vs. an OEM trunk w/ performance spoiler so I set up a poll. I'm doing a LCI conversion in the rear just don't know what I should do. I like how the Arkym trunk is very different not many people have it (this is why I didn't go with a CSL style trunk) but I also like the simplicity of the OEM trunk with a Performance Spoiler. So opinions anyone? I provided pics of my car, a e90 with the Arkym trunk, and a OEM trunk with performance spoiler.

Try to imagine the trunk with Sparkling Graphite...I'm leaving it CF for a until I have enough to paint it:






Hope this guy doesn't mind me stealing some pictures:









Performance Spoiler:






Soooooo what do you guys think?

IMO the perf. spoiler doesnt look that bad but the cool thing about the arkym trunk is that you get that nicer aggressive look for the rear and plus since your car is SGM the perf. spoiler wouldn't really show itself that much either, compared to a lighter color car...so IMO you should definitely jump on the arkym

gl with your decision, cant wait to see the pics!

Honestly both looks really good. Can't go wrong either way. I finally switched my M3 to performance spoiler and I love it! On a side note, you should upgrade your stock bumpers first IMO, at least the front. Arkym is too aggressive for your car ATM and it'll look weird unless you do the LCI OEM trunk first, then you can add the performance spoiler later.

That's very true it'll look awkward in the rear til I get the m-tech rear bumper..it's my next mod should be getting it within 3 months. The front doesn't really bother me as much as the rear. When I do the front I'm going to do the LCI M-Sport front.

OEM out of the two. Much more class.

But I'd say none

My recommendation would be arkym...BUT i would swap bumpers before the trunk personally because the trunk by itself would look out of place until you do the bumpers but the bumpers would look great before and after you swap trunks.
